As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. -- Isaiah 55:10-11

Gratitude 17--Morning Gratitude

The temperatures are warm enough for quiet mornings on the deck. In the early morning light, I sit in quiet and seek the Lord. I find wondrous things...

1. Two trees intertwined to make one boasting of peach and plum blossoms.
2. Owls asking "hoo" else is enjoying the morning.
3. Birds singing praise.
4. Trees waving their arms in the breeze, rejoicing.
5. I raise my arms, too. Why should the trees have all the fun?
6. A comfy rocker.
7. Hot coffee.
8. Quiet solitude.
9. Enough light to journal by
9. A Bible in my language.
10. The ability to read.
11. The Lord desiring me so much He wakes me up early so we can be alone.
